Take that big breath in, and let it out nice and slow. There you go. How about one more for good measure? Why the hell, not? We just wrapped up another ridiculous season in 2009, and the wild ride is only going to be on break for a few days before we REALLY kick things up. Get your Icy-Hot on, ice packs, bandages, and whatever else you may need to get ready for this weekend. Because we all know some of us... or most... or all... will probably be jumping and screaming at the game, or at the television. Just a quick season finale recap before we dive into the 2009 NBA Playoffs. Oooh, yes i did! I said playoffs! Philadelphia seal's Bostons fate for now, dropping Cleveland to 39-2 at home with an exciting 111-110 overtime game. Mavericks went on a massive run in the 2nd half to down the Rockets, 95-84. That lead the door open for San Antonio, who trailed the Hornets 90-87 with 0:07 left. Finley drained a three at the buzzer, and the Spurs won the Southwest Division, clinch #3 with homecourt by beating New Orleans 105-98 in overtime. Lastly the Blazers played the Nuggets to try and clinch homecourt vs. the Rockets in the first round, and succeded by slaughering Denver in the 2nd and 4th en route to a lopsided 104-76 win. Here's how everything rescrambled tonight to open the Playoffs this weekend:
